Mid-HudsonNews [dot] com is reporting Independent Helicopters has announced plans to build a heliport on land it purchased from the town of New Windsor, immediately adjacent to New York Stewart International Airport. The firm currently rents hangar space at Stewart. Independent Helicopters' owner and chief pilot, Heather Hawley, intends to begin construction of the 8,000-square-foot hangar on the three-acre parcel soon. “We have 4,000-square feet of open hangar space that will have our helicopters in and then eventually turn into an event space as well. So we can do events there and weddings and all kinds of fun stuff with the helicopters as a backdrop,” she said. In addition to the Stewart operation, Hawley also operates a facility in Saratoga Springs.
